Side note...

My first Made in America stratocaster will be arriving on Friday. I'll try to make the first song Hendrix's version of the Star Spangled Banner. More likely I'll forget and cut into some Black Sabbath.

Dude: Have U visited the Freedom Tower site? Really well done imo.

Sarasota 'cane

I was working at Tropicana Juice in Bradenton, FL and a guy I worked with came in and said a plane had hit the WTC and I was thinking it was a small plane that hit the building by accident.

So we all went back to our PC's to see what was up and the internet was down. People kept coming in and giving us more and more info and finally they told us we could go home.

My boss and I went over to my house and turned on the TV and the 1st tower had already fallen, but we couldn't tell because of all the smoke and dust. As we listened to the broadcast we heard that the building had collapsed and it started to come into focus.

Within about 15 minutes the 2nd tower crashed and we were shell shocked. The various videos started to trickle in of the planes hitting the building and you knew it was a terrorist attack.

It feels like it happened yesterday.

I've been there a couple of times. I went during the day once and also at night. Totally different vibe but just as solemn both visits.

9/11 makes you really think how trivial (like sports) really is. We watch a game, get pissed when we lose / happy when we win but there is always the next day. For 3000+, there wont be and their families have to relive that day over and over again. #neverforget #honor911

Taking a one post hiatus from my self imposed ban to say God bless our police and first responders, who risk their lives like those on 9/11 every day in cities big and small across this country on a daily basis.

All with little or no recognition or appreciation.

Amen.

Ima go a different direction then most spacers and say I don't things are all that bad. We are 7 points away from being 2-0 and ranked inside the top 20. We are one single play away in each of those 2 games. When we start making those plays, we will win. I honestly don't know why we thought we would go 11-1 or 10-2 a year after 7-6. We went 7-6 with better players IMO. Outside of Bandy we lost our entire secondary. We lost an All-American in Willis, lost Jackson, JJ etc. That is a lot of talent on the D side of the ball, then add new DC and position coaches etc.

I just dont think the sky is falling just yet. Correct a couple things and we are there. Williams has at least proven he wont lose us the game, but he needs to make plays. My fat ass could of walked in that 2 point conversion. You got to get that 4th and 1. But I think that will come. Still a whole new offense. Still got freshman and busts on the OL etc.

We did improve from the first game. I think we need these next two games to get ourselves going, gain confidence and get some wins.

And I love my boy TSully, but CMD is no Shannon.


Old Skool

Supposedly Perry missed practice today with a personal issue. Rather strange for that to happen in the week before a game in which he might actually see playing time. Perhaps it is a real family emergency ... still ya gotta wonder.

Old Skool

Gotta wonder what Bubbabooie and Patke are doing this week to correct the yips in the kicking game

FYI The term the 'yips' was coined by the Scottish golfer Tommy Armour, who said it was a "brain spasm that impairs the short game." "Versions of it have been known over the years by many names, among them 'freezing,' 'the waggles,' 'the staggers,' 'the jerks,” and 'whiskey fingers,'

BigWindyCane1

I still cannot believe the 4th and 17. Although the defensive play call in that situation was horrendous, I also have to say that the safeties didn't play well on that play, and really haven't played well the first two games.

I cannot believe the Canes have gone from Jaquan and Redwine (two former Killian alumn now in the NFL) to the play of Hall and Carter. The safety play has gone from great the last couple of years to atrocious the first two games of this season. The safeties need to turn this around. I don't care what CMD, Blake Baker and Banda say, the safeties have been a weak link for the defense this season. If the coaches don't address this safeties issue soon, I will tune them out.

I have been watching the Canes for years, and I don't recall the Canes (or any college football team really) to have given up a 4th and 17, especially with the game on the line.

Given the talent level, this defensive performance should be unacceptable.

LOL! I guess there has been a few of those over the last three decades. I guess you can now add UM/UNC to that video.

AeroCane

Big windy - I agree with most but I’m now questioning ‘our talent level’
Im also questioning Diaz’s decisions to hire Blake and Patke as st coach, not canning Banda and rumph (or at least rumph) when Diaz was hired), firing Hartley (should of been retained as TE coach); currently I question (among many other things), why has he not replaced patke yet? Gutless and a bad non move!

Old Skool

On this 9.11 don't forget about those who died in Shanksville or the Pentagon.

For the families the pain is still very real, here's a quote from a widow in the NYTimes

She said that the memorial was where she sensed his presence the most. “There’s never closure,” she said, “but when I come here, when the wind blows, it’s like he’s kissing me.”

Hmm here's the choice if your name and your game is big enough: money or bowl games. If enough athletes go for the money, watch the arms (cash) race begin.
Other states will pass laws to compete. That may hurt the small market or small state universities, because the money you're liable to get from local endorsements in LA, Miami, Houston, Chicago, or possibly even large states like California, Texas, Florida, New York is going to dwarf what you're going to get from going in Lincoln, Nebraska, Tuscaloosa, Alabama
or Norman, Oklahoma

ESPN college football expert Kirk Herbstreit, however disagrees with the list. He would have ranked the 2001 Miami Hurricanes as the best team of all time.


“I would put I between [1995 Nebraska], [2001 Miami] and [2009 Alabama] and I’d probably pull the trigger on [Miami 2001],” Herbstreit said on Sports Center. “They had a lot of great players on that team and great leadership from Ken Dorsey and Ed Reed. Athletes like Andre Johnson. They just walked into that National Championship and blew out Nebraska. Think about that backfield with Clinton Portis, Willis McGahee, and Frank Gore. Jeremy Shockey at tight end.”

Big Windy, who they going to replace Hall and Carter with? Agreed Hall needs to be replaced he sucks and he wears #26.

BigWindyCane1

Herb,

Good question. IMHO, Derrick Smith could have helped the Canes this season, but Smith transferred, so we will have to wait and see if Carter and Hall improve. Maybe Bubba Bolden (if he becomes eligible soon) can help, or the freshman Keontra Smith who I once saw in preseason, and he certainly looked the part can contribute if Hall and Carter don't improve.

I guess we will see how things unfold over the next couple of weeks.

Go Canes!!

Ok so I need to take second hiatus from week long self imposed ban:

Have three tickets and parking pass available for Saturday’s game.

Tixs are free. Just post that you want and we can arrange.

Go Canes I would love The Tickets Man. I could meet up with you on Gameday.

If you still want can you post your number? I’ll text you so we can arrange to meet.

TSully, I would not sweat it. It's gonna hit Alabama instead, lol

Wow! Miami Southridge Coach Sedrick Irvin let go after just two games. Sedrick Irvin played in the NFL, and even coached at Memphis and Alabama in college.

Coaching high school football is tough!

The next five straight games are at home, then five more very winnable games. 10-2, or 9-3 is very doable, and will help me forget this very disappointing start to the season. Anything less is just another disappointing season

BWC...10-2???

Go Canes already banned himself for two weeks.

You already had to go to confession twice and withdraw several previous statements. Are U sure U want to run with that?

The 12% bus has been auctioned off, we have no special teams coach, the OL is well the OL, and the strongest part of the team, the defense, looks suspect at best.

The Ibis appears to be hung over, the cheerleaders are wavering and threatening a strike and the Band of the Hour has become silent.

If we go 10-2 I will continue the blog.

If we go 8-4 I am done.

And as HillView Cane posted the other day (all due respect)...IF the California Law causes the NCAA to pay college players I am completely done with college athletics once and for all.

And oh, what a relief it will be!

VA Cane

Cam is terrible on the field.....and needs a haircut. Comes to presser with that wig head and a kerchief on his head like Mae west or some damn cross dresser.....the boy is mentally off in the head.....he said he needs to get better needs to look in the mirror....he does look in the mirror and start looking like a man who has some sense and knows how to dress!!!

3 long delays on calls in the game....NFL has too many reviews of plays that make the league and pro game a joke!!!

Sota,
Got it yesterday. Looks great, in fact I am going to order the ‘Ibis ‘ but can’t find it on their website and they don’t open for another hour so will try later today
Many thanks

Andiamo Miami. Gone for 2 settimane. Mi dispiace to miss Bethune and Central Mich. Io spero to see some vastly improved football with Va Tech.

Would love to see deep balls, backs picking up blitzing defenders, better safety play, an effective red zone offense and something far more dependable than field goal roulette.
